The Importance of Independent Games

Moving from the sixth-generation of consoles (Xbox, PS2, Gamecube) to the 7th brought about massive, unexpected changes in the world of gaming. Previously, all that was expected from a good game was a fun single-player and possibly a great split-screen mode to complement the single-player. Of course there are exceptions to this, but it’s fair to say this was the norm. But with the advent of the seventh-gen, expectations rose. Online capabilities, achievements, HD graphics. Higher quality content was expected in larger quantities. Needless to say, production values rose. (GameCube, Gamecube, My Xbox, PC, PS2, PS2 Hardware, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

There's a lot of good independent games (Castle Crashers is probably my favorite) but there's WAY more bad independent games trying to copy other formulas. We see a few works of passion, and way to many clones from lazy attitudes.
